Hampton Roads has a lot of developer, UI / UX, and data talent in the area. Network with other local talent by joining the 757 dev slack community, a community group such as Code for Hampton Roads & UXPA, the Norfolk data science group, or join one of many language specific user groups.
Here are a few local data sources you can check out before the event.
The Greater Hampton Roads Community Indicators Dashboard measures factors that most significantly impact our region’s quality of life. We track meaningful, accurate, and standardized data over time to give a clearer picture of how our community is doing. We invite you to explore, compare, and take action.
City of Norfolk will be bringing data to the event, but in the meantime check out Norfolk.gov. Browse through and get inspiration for ideas.
The OpenVB Data Portal is the central repository for data published by the City of Virginia Beach. This portal is one component of the broader OpenVB platform, which provides easy access to open data and information about your city government. View, explore, and download our data. We encourage the use of public data that the City of Virginia Beach has published to spark innovation, promote public collaboration, increase government transparency, and inform decision making..
In addition to resources within the community, we will have the following industry sponsors present at the event to talk about data science in general and also provide hands on training with the tools they offer.
